Animal Shelter Extends Saturday Hours Effort To Increase Adoptions

(LOUISVILLE) -- In an effort to increase adoptions and reunite more lost animals with their owners, Metro Animal Services (MAS) will extend its Saturday hours for the public. 

Effective this Saturday, July 30, the kennels will be open for viewing and adoptions from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Administrative offices will be open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. for pet licensing and payment of fines. 

Both areas previously closed at noon.

"When I started this job almost three weeks ago, I made a commitment to increase customer service and adoptions," said Dr. Gilles Meloche, director of MAS. "This is just the first of many changes to better serve the animals in our care and our residents."

Improvements are also underway at the shelter. Contractors are busy painting the building and colorful flowers have also been added.

"This is an effort to make a positive first impression. We know the men and women who work at MAS are professional and dedicated to animal welfare. I want our building to communicate that to our customers," said Meloche.

The shelter is located at 3705 Manslick Road at the intersection of Crums Lane. Right now there are 30 cats and dogs available for adoption. For more information about adoption, call MAS at 361-1318.
